Mediterranean
Vino Levantino is first and foremost a wine bar. Our wines are imported from all over the world, mostly from boutique wineries in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Israel & the Americas. Our menu reflects the diversity of the Ottoman Empire. It is also influenced by the cuisine of Sephardic Jews, many of whom journeyed to Israel through Turkey.

    Disappointing plain-Jane quasi Mediterranean. Cafeteria grade - tastlesss and not as advertised on menu. Wine list banal and service listless. Nice cute place but poor value and can do so much better elsewhere.

    We really enjoyed the restaurant. Food was excellent. Many vegetarian choices, even vegan, but not just that. Hummus and fattoush were delicious and we had a sea bass baked with fragrant herbs and spices that was fabulous! Service was friendly, wine selection excellent. Just a lovely neighborhood find. Right across from Symphony Space.

    Another unforgettable evening at Vino Levantino. The owner helped us pick the wine, which was spectacular. The tuna tartare was so delicious and the hummus is I think the best in NYC. Tried the new menu item, Turkish meatballs, which were incredible. Ended with a Turkish lava cake which was also so so good. I will be back very very soon

    Hard to be positive about a middle eastern restaurant where the falafel was passable, the tahini worse than the standard container I get at the store, and the hummus without taste (supermarket Sabra brand far better). My $15 three cheese plate featured rubbery mozzarella and supposedly a tomato and olive cheese whose name the waiter couldn’t remember that bore a suspicious resemblance to pepper jack cheese. They were out of one of the wines we ordered. Really, really wanted to like this place but I won’t be going back. :(

    Amelia was so helpful. wine by the glass, even during happy hour, was way above average. In fact, actually not only unusually drinkable, but actually good. At dinner, the $17 Barolo was okay, but the $10 Cabernet Sauvignon (2016) from Lazio, Italy, was better. The stuffed eggplant, essentially a hummus plate wrapped in an eggplant skin, was delicious. Perfectly done. They could have included the pita without the extra charge. Only negative: typically small tables crowded together, so noise level made dinner conversation nearly impossible. Go with your partner and talk when you get home.

    Food is fine but expensive for what it is and what the place is like. My main course could have been hotter, it was just warm. They charged us for something we didn’t order on the check.

    What a great find! We loved that they had two entrees with “vegan” in their name l but it would be a greater benefit to vegan patrons if all vegan dishes on the menu (and there were several others) were identified in some way (perhaps with a letter or symbol) as it’s not always obvious. I especially liked the shredded root vegetable salad as I never had a salad like it before and it was delicious and very fresh. Also liked the Fattoush Salad. My only disappointment with the Moroccan Style Cod Fish was that it was tender and flavorful that I wished I could control myself so I would have some leftover to bring home with me. It was sooo good. My (vegan) daughter loved the vegan cheese plate which had an interesting variety and there is a regular cheese plate for non-vegans. I’m looking forward to going back.

    The service & ambience were excellent, the food mixed. I think we didn’t order wisely. We ordered 3 appetizers & they were excellent. The two fish meals were also excellent, the tuna burger and salmon on skewers. But the two vegetarian main dishes (vegan mousses and cauliflower) were poor, bland and not filling. Coffee machine was out of order so we skipped dessert. I’d go back and try again though.

    Really appreciated the opportunity to have quality vegan cuisine (the menu accommodates omnivores, as well). The shredded root vegetable salad was crisp and delicious, and my friend enjoyed her roasted eggplant. But the service is what really made the experience special. Jonathan and Yusuf were kind and helpful from the moment I called to say we’d be late. Warm, friendly, down-to-earth, real people who are solicitous without going overboard. Wish I still lived on the UWS so I could go there more often

    Having dinner with one of my oldest friends who I hadn't seen in a long time was totally pleasurable at Vino Levantino because the staff was 100% cordial and sweet. We took a long time to order because once we started chatting, it was hard to stop. The server did not pressure us to order. When we finally did, and ate our delicious meal (2 different salmon dishes) , there was no pressure for us to finish and get out. We stayed as long as we wanted to. The only time the noise level rose was when the table next to us got filled with happy people, but we left before it got unpleasant. I would definitely go back and recommend it to friends.

    I liked Vino Levantino's ambiance and it provides a good setting for a first date. I only got drinks here and not food. But I don't think the drink prices were that great. Vino Levantino's happy hour ends at 6 pm, which is strange. Furthermore, the waiters did not refill our waters after we ordered our second drinks.
